You’d be mistaken for thinking this is a tourist attraction and could easily walk in why without realising. It’s a nice bridge but it’s also just another bridge in Paris - and it’s not on the same scale of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Still nice...More

And it is still suffering from Graffiti and needs a makeover in my opinion. It is very close to the Eiffel Tower and is a better way of reaching that than the Pont d'lena which is very crowded. Great views all the same. 1852

This footbridge was constructed for the 1900 world's fair to connect the Army and Navy buildings. This bridge provides a great vantage point to view the Eiffel Tower.

Over the Seine river, it provides a great view for the Tower and the city in general. Although I haven't been through it, I could see how beautiful it is. And could also take some cool pictures.

Passerelle Debilly makes easy access for a pedestrian to cross the Seine from the Eiffel Tower to the Museum of Modern Art and beyond. The footbridge was built in 1899 for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, it was named after one of Napoleon's general, Billy.

I never realised of the historical significance of the Passerelle Debilly pedestrian Bridge whilst holidaying in Paris. This well constructed bridge was only meant to be a temporary one I believe, but it has now proved to be a permanent structure in the hearts of...More
